Terminator is widely regarded as an action series, but the first film can be argued to fit in the horror genre as well. In many ways, it could be considered a time travel slasher flick, and this short highlights those aspects. The ambient, alien, unnerving soundtrack really drives home the atmosphere. Cutting the story down to an extended chase shouldn't work, but the editor pulled it off with style! It's quite seamless. Most impressive. I believe that he also did some color correction? Or perhaps I'm just not familiar with the more recent remasters of the film. At any rate, it looks quite nice from an aesthetic standpoint. Technically, there's some obvious compression, and the frame rate isn't presented in the standard 3:2 pulldown. Still, a very entertaining, well put together short. Well worth watching.
